Hey all,

Does anyone know what the invoice price for 2009 Canadian IS Fs is? I can find info on US ones for free on tons of sites, but for Canada, they feel that they need to charge us to find out.

If anyone knows, that would be great!

Thanks,

Dixon

no idea. good luck on tryin to swindle a deal for an '09 tho. they're basically special order only. i got mine a year after i bought a brand new is350 from them and i got $2000 off. and trust me, i bugged everybody from my salesman to the general manager.

I think the angle I'm going to start attacking them from is the 7,000 dollar instant cash incentive they were doing last year, going to try, say... 3,500 off. I know the market is improving, and that they aren't really in a rush to get rid of cars, and since the F is such a small market car, I know that production will be extremely small. But anyone else know what the invoice price is?

oh trust me i mentioned the 2008 incentive a few times. the reason they have that is to get rid of the '08s.

my dealers markup was 9%. the sales manager told me this. whether it is truthful or not i don't know.

until all the '08s are gone i dont think there are going to be too many outstanding deals on an '09.

Just bite the bullet and spend the $30 on the pricing info from Consumer's Reports or any other similar service. If you can't be bothered to invest $30 in researching a $70K purchase you're crazy.

Haha, that's true, I'll just have to get the report thing. I don't think they'll have any '08s left that are new, maybe I can get something in '09, but when I talked to the sale person last they were already trying to sell me a '10 model.

I don't think Canadian dealers have got the glut of '08s left that those in the US do. Keep in mind, when the US economy tanked, auto sales were down ~40% YOY, in Canada the number was closer to 20%.

They might - after trading dollars. But at least you'll know what the dealer's true cost is and you can have an intelligent discussion about what a reasonable profit margin is.

January Data but I believe it has changed upward a little based on the current MSRP.

2009
Series I:
MSRP:65,300, Dealer Invoice ~59,400
Series II:
MSRP: 69,400, Dealer Invoice ~ 62,900

General rule of thumb for Lexus' in Canada base models are usually 8-9% (Series I) and the higher end models are 10-11% (Series II). For example the base model RX has a low to mid 8 point mark-up while the highest loaded model is in the 10-11 point range at the dealer level as with the ISF above.

I would suggest you try and find an '08 as well considering the $7000 cash incentive. There are a handfull kicking around and usually the dealer will throw in a discount on top of TCI's cash incentive. You could probably walk away $10k off the sticker with under 100kms on the odo.

Good luck in your searches.

Thanks Molson, that's perfect!

Oh a question for hahaha, how much did you pay for your F, and what did it come with in terms of 'extras' like 3M clearbra, floor mats, etc?
